3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I sampled this beer on draft at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore, Maryland, served in a snifter glass. The beer had a somewhat-cloudy, straw-orange/yellow, with a large, bubbly white head that had very good retention and ample cling and lacing. The aroma featured crisp notes of floral, pine, and citrus hops, along with yeast and some sweet malty scents too. The beer is fairly sweet and has touches of fruity and floral effects to go with a slight citrus bitterness. Its a fairly wet beer with good carbonation, and has a lighter feel and is a touch thin.

On tap at Pinocchio’s. Murky straw colored with white foamy head. Yeasty aroma. Lots of pilsner like flavors in this, hay and grass with sweet bready malt. A sweet and zingy tang imparted from the Belgian yeast. Pretty enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham. Overpriced $8/10 oz pour (I ordered before I looked). Pours pale straw golden with moderate white head. Clean, grassy, slightly hoppy taste. Some grain and moderate Belgian yeast. Light and refreshing for the style. Thin palate. Very drinkable for 8%, but maybe I just needed the beer.
